I hate to say it, but you did not post an actual error.

I use Debian (the 64 bit branch) and can send you the deb I made or you can try posting again the error.

Outstanding screensaver. Thank you for sharing it. I had no problems compiling/installing it under Kubuntu Feisty. Maybe this weekend I'll create a .deb to share.

well, it looks fine at the screenshot, but when i try to execute the configure script(OpenSuse 10.2 x86_64, ./configure --with-qt-libraries=/usr/lib/qt3/lib64/ --with-qt-includes=/usr/lib/qt3/include/) I get the following error message:

checking for libjpeg... -ljpeg
checking for perl... /usr/bin/perl

So, check this please and use another prefix!

this is the coolest screensaver i've ever seen. the first ever beryl specific one as well. excellent work, i love it. you may consider making debs for the newer ubuntu releases, i'm running feisty which will be final in a few days and you still don't have an edgy build posted. i don't mind compiling but there are many linux users who have never compiled anything who would love your screensaver as much as i do.

Wow! this is really cool...

I have installed this on Redhat v4 kde3.5.6. and have a small problem... The screensaver is showing up only half of the screen... and other half (down) is blank (black)

Please advice..

I prepared an ebuild for Gentoo users.

If you do not already have a Portage overlay, create one, e.g. by creating a directory /usr/local/portage, and adding

PORTDIR_OVERLAY="/usr/local/portage"

to your /etc/make.conf. Then download

http://codav.de/kram/misc/kcometen3-1.1-gentoo-ebuild.tar.bz2

and unpack the archive in your overlay directory. Now just emerge kde-misc/kcometen3, and select it in the OpenGL category of your screensaver list in the KDE control center..

I cleaned the ebuild up a little bit and added it to the Xeffects overlay - I'm sure you've heard of it. Hope you don't mind.

P.S. The screensaver doesn't seem to do anything for me?

CodAv,

is there any particular reason your package is masked for x86? i'd like to get this one on amd64 but i'm not sure how to unmask?

nice nice nice work! It took me to build it like ./configure --prefix="/usr/" but than it showed up and worked like a charm (on kubuntu edgy)

Can you port this to Windows? (I know it's heresy to even suggest it, but this is too good to keep confined to Linux!)

I fear this will not as easy as it seems ;/
It's not just porting it with different compiler flags, I guess there are a lot of libs needed and missed on windows... (prove me wrong..)

it might be easier if you ported it to qt4, i suppose.

I hate posting problems as a comment, but I don't know how else to contact the author, so perhaps someone can help:

Configure succeeds:
./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-final


...but then running make generates this problem:

It reports that I don't have the dependancy kdelibs4cd2. When I look in adept, I actually have kdelibs4cd2a (note the a on the end), which I'm presuming is actually more up to date.

Is there any way to install this on edgy, or should I just be installing the older version of kdelibs?

hi,
for me i had to set the prefix in configure to usr/kde/3.5/

-> ./configure --prefix="/usr/kde/3.5/"

System: Gentoo Linux with KDE 3.5.5

Now it works perfekt, thanks !

I think this screensaver is a little bit revolution :-)
And I'm proud to have the same domain (cs.tu-berlin.de) as the developer Peter Müller has. Good job, Peter:-)

Just add --prefix=`kde-config --prefix` to your ./configure command.
